I just read the press release from January 2015 Wes Nakagiri – RetakeOurGov, “The Michigan Republican Party’s declining loyalty” and found it to be very interesting. I would like to add my take on the last “update” at the bottom of his page (link below) in regard to Bobby Schostak not running for the MIGOP Party chairman position.
I have witnessed first hand how the game is played in the political arena and I can assure you Schostak is most likely running the show from behind the scenes! For those that have been involved for years can attest this is common practice within the MIGOP.
As an example, the former chairman of the Monroe County Republican Party (MCRP) will validate exactly what I’m referring to in this regard. While “electing” new chairman is really nothing more than appointing or anointing said chairman.
The (MCRP) for which I was an executive committee member uses this same practice whereas the Party is run by former Senator Randy Richardville’s mother Glenda Kennon behind the scenes “not who sits in the chair seat” and Richardville is a close and personal friend of Bobby Schostak.
If you connect all the dots going back years you will see several examples of this in those that have been appointed to various political positions within the MIGOP.
John Truscott served as Director of Communications and Press Secretary to Governor John Engler and Engler appointed a political unknown to chair his new government entity the MEDC none other than current Michigan Governor Rick Snyder.
John Truscott was appointed to the Michigan State Capitol Commission in 2014 which on and above other things is in charge of recommending legislative appropriations.
Currently there is a $6.4 million taxpayer funded makeover of the State Capitol underway on and above new office furniture (Snyder’s Cousin George Snyder gets state contract) and a new Senate building which financially benefits another Snyder appointee Ron Boji.
Oh the stuff I could share with you would make the hair on your back stand up! The problem I see is many newbie’s to the political arena have no clue nor do they have the ability to connect all the dots!
This report is just a drop in the bucket or a needle in a haystack of cronyism and corruption in state government compared to what “We the People” the citizens of Michigan haven’t found out about and that’s scary, very scary!
We citizens of Michigan are coming out on the very short end of the stick in the representation that we “expect and deserve” from those we elect to “serve” us!
Snyder appoints unsavory businessmen to Michigan Government
There are many conflicts of interest with Snyder’s appointees! Many have been or are currently under investigation by the Feds.
Ron Boji appointed to state Transportation Commission Thursday, Oct. 17, 2013 LANSING, Mich. – Gov. Rick Snyder today announced the appointment of Ron Boji, of Orchard Lake, to the state Transportation Commission.
Gov. Rick Snyder has appointed Ron Boji to the “Michigan Strategic Fund” (MEDC)
Who is Ron Boji and the Boji Group? “Most of the dirt on this company and its principals was dug up by impressive investigative reports made by Detroit-area news outlet WXYZ’s Ross Jones and Fox 2 News’ Charlie Le Duff.” See link for “dirt” on Boji below.
All of Snyder’s business buddies from his Ann Arbor SPARK and or his Avalon Investments companies have been appointed positions in the crony MEDC.
Despite projected $454 million budget crunch, Michigan senators push for new offices
Who benefits financially? A Snyder appointee that’s who! Senate Secretary Carol Viventi testified that all the Senators do not have a view of the Capitol….I’m not making this up!
On the Boji Group, LLC web site (About Us) it states that the group is a “progressive” real estate development, property management and construction management firm. Mr. Boji was involved with Bob Ficano in an FBI probe.

“The Boji Files”t along with the Ron Boji appointments Snyder made in Michigan government.
It was Snyder who recruited Michael Finney from Rochester, N.Y., to head Ann Arbor Spark when it was founded in 2005 while Snyder was chairman of the MEDC.
